Light­ning strike at Klondyke Cup

The Compass - - SPORTS -

The host CBN Light­ning team claimed the first an­nual Klondyke Cup un­der14 soc­cer tour­na­ment July 31 with a dom­i­nat­ing per­for­mance at the three-team event.

The Light­ning squad went un­de­feated in the tour­na­ment, outscor­ing the op­po­si­tion 20-3. Other en­tries in­cluded teams from Trin­ity-South and Pla­cen­tia. Coach Robert Tar­rant at­trib­uted the suc­cess of his team to the high level of com­mitt­ment ex­ib­ited by all the play­ers.

“ We al­ways get a high turnout at our prac­tices, which al­lows play­ers to de­velop their game skills and help them reach a high level of con­di­tion­ing,” he said.

This was the sec­ond tour­na­ment vic­tory for the Light­ning in less than a week.

Ear­lier, the team trav­elled to St. Lawrence and de­feated the host team by a mar­gin of 7-1 and a blended team from Marys­town and Burin 5-2.
